If you are a beginning bassist or a French bow player curious to try out the German bow without spending too much, this product is for you. For the price it simply cannot be beat-The bow is made of wood, has a quality feel and seems pretty durable. The pad is a little cheap looking but functional. I am a college music major with nine years of bass playing experience, during which time I have played exclusively with a French bow. Four stars for being a quality product, I gave it a fifth just for having such a low price. Overall excellent product, highly recommended.
When my previous bow broke, I wanted to replace it with an inexpensive wooden one. I have never used a super-expensive fancy bow, so I don't really know the difference, but once I got this one all rosined up it sounded and felt just fine. In my opinion, you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on a stick with some hair unless you're a professional concert bassist, and if you are then you're probably not looking at this listing anyways.
I paid for this bow to be shipped overnight to us so my daughter could have it before leaving for International Music Camp. I was thrilled when it arived. Unfortunately, it did not stand up to daily use and by day three had come apart. Maybe I just received a bad unit...
